I agree about the lead actress, she was great. Ditto Paul Dano. I don't know what Jake Gyllenhaal was thinking with his performance though!

Re: Spidey Take 3: Iron man edition

I was genuinely stunned when we find out Vulture is Liz's father. The action stuff was fairly same old same old, but I liked the high school stuff a lot. Zendaya channelling Daria for her character was especially funny (that Washington Monument bit!). Hope we see more of her in the sequel. As fo...

Re: British Snap Election - Meh result

BoJo and Moggy. Two names off the top of my head who have a modicum of charisma. The Tories expected a big majority at the start. That was because they had yet to reveal their utterly cancerous manifesto. If they had just shut up and stuck to platitudes like "Brexit means Brexit", and kep...

Speaking as a Labour supporter my whole life, before we crack open the champagne, we need to figure out how to win. Happy to accept that may need to be led by Corbyn, but in case anyone missed it, we came second. No prize for second place. Until 10pm on Thursday, pretty much everyone thought the To...

Re: British EU referendum in June [update: Leave wins 52% - 48%, politics ensue]

I'm talking about rational self-interest, which has nothing to do with optimism or naivete. If saner heads prevail, then they will negotiate in good faith. If they want to make an example, they'll offer a crap deal they know the UK will reject. My estimation is that the latter outcome will hurt the...

The other route of failure would be for voters to abandon him but you need to find something that is distasteful to a lot of voters. I'm still looking for an argument that isn't "Trump is a terrible person and is unfit to lead". That argument works very well if it comes from people truste...

Strange. I watched it subbed, not dubbed. Did they create two different English audio tracks for movie? Possible I guess, but that's a lot of trouble to go through just to change a name.
